Patient Education

Dental Assistants Rock!

It is important to keep in mind that when it comes to understanding patients’ needs, learning is best achieved through multiples senses.  We know people have preferred learning styles, and we also know visual cues are more likely to be remembered.  So, if your current approach to communicating with patients is based on verbal cues only, your message is most likely to be forgotten.  By incorporating visuals, patients are more likely to comprehend and remember.  You will find a variety of oral health topics in multiple formats on  The educational materials can be customized to include your practice information and are available in multiple languages.  You can print these materials to send home with your patients, or use chair side if you have computer access in your operatory.

Dental Assistants are a very important part of every dental office, yet they often receive the least recognition for all their hard work.  We held a contest on Facebook asking dental professionals “Why Dental Assistants Rock at Work!”  From this contest, “The Top 10 Reasons Dental Assistants Rock!” poster was developed highlighting the importance and dedication of Dental Assistants everywhere!  Download and print the poster and hang it proudly in your office!
